It took me a while to be sure of what made my installation crash but now I know. My 2nd hdd, which I use for back up, storage, data, etc.. crash my os x. It is the only IDE device in my machine (in fact, its the old hdd from my old machine) and its formatted in FAT32.

 

I have no idea how to fix this but I would like to be able to fully use that hdd.

 

also, I got a 2nd problem with os x. It doesn't seem to keep track of time.. the clock keep desynchronising itself.

Hey!

I have the same system board. I have windows xp loaded on my ide device as well as another partition that I use for other windows stuff. (I find myself using windows less and less now a days though) So one thing that I have seen is when I try to copy files off of my ide device the system will sometimes panic. It's only from the windows xp partition though. I can access the file systems and see everything out there. I just got to 10.5.5 the other day.

Same here. I disabled the IDE in the bios and just running only SATA drives now and the system is stable now.

That's a typical problem with your 45nm processor. You can't trust any benchmark tests you do either- the clock is off and will completely skew any results with riduculous readings.

 

I found that some math-critical tasks completely fail- while using Final Cut, the system couldn't calculate frames properly and edits were wrong.

 

You need to use either the modbin kernel, or Chameleon to resolve it. if there are other fixes, I'm not sure of it, as I've asked dozens of times about this from other users' experiences, but never gotten much of an answer. For the time being, I stick with 65nm processors which don't have the problem.

This is interesting as I have just started to notice that my clock has been off even while using ntp. I have to open the time panel and it will then sync. I had just downloaded id1.3 to try an install on a second sata drive I have. I will try Chameleon or modbin tonight to see if that clears up these issues.
